Description

**The number 1 ebook bestseller!**

Everything was perfect. And then her fiancé disappeared…

‘Dazzling’ DAILY MAIL
‘A terrific new talent’ PETER JAMES

Two weeks before her wedding, a stranger stops Amy in the street and warns her she’s in danger. Then that night, Matt, her fiancé, doesn’t come home. Desperate, Amy calls the police – but when Matt fails to emerge, she’s forced to call off her wedding day.

Then another man is reported missing, by a woman called Fiona – a man meeting Matt’s description, who was about to leave his fiancée for her.  He was supposed to be moving in with her – but instead, he’s vanished.

Amy refuses to believe Fiona’s lover can be her Matt – but photos prove otherwise, and it soon becomes clear that Matt has been leading a double life. As the police dig deeper, two conflicting, yet equally plausible stories emerge from two women who allegedly have never met.

The wedding day never happened. But the funeral might.

Reviews

PRAISE FOR DEBBIE HOWELLS:

‘A dazzling debut from a writer who looks to me to have an exceptional future. Howells’ novel has a rare freshness and depth that set her apart’ [The Bones of You] Daily Mail

‘Sharply written with characters that keep you guessing until the very last page, this story holds you tight and then drops you like a stone’ [Her Sister’s Lie] Liz Nugent

‘A terrific new talent. She paints with words and takes a scalpel to emotions’ Peter James

‘Haunting’ [The Beauty of the End] Good Housekeeping

‘I raced through this book, compelled to keep turning the pages to unravel the secrets. Kept me guessing right until the last moment. Trust NO ONE! A sinister, twisty tale you won’t want to put down.’ Sam Carrington

‘The Vow is a well-crafted whodunnit, with enough red herrings to keep you guessing until the end. An intriguing plot with a host of characters that leave you wondering who you can trust!’ Wendy Clarke

'Just as you untangle this compelling plot of love and betrayal, there's another twist. A story of how old resentments encroach on new dreams, set against the beautiful Sussex landscape. I couldn't put The Vow down.' Penny Hancock

About the author

After self-publishing three women's commercial fiction novels, Debbie wrote The Bones of You, her first psychological thriller. It was a Sunday Times bestseller and picked for the Richard and Judy book club. Three more have followed, The Beauty of The End, The Death of Her and Her Sister's Lie, all published by Pan Macmillan.

Her latest book, The Vow, will be published by Avon later this year.

After a number of career changes, Debbie now writes full time, inspired by the peacefulness of the countryside she lives in with her partner Martin, Bean the rescued cat and a rather elderly golden retriever called Bernard.
